RE: Rice Krispies in my tanks
"poppping" is excess juice on the coil.  Coil heats up, juice in contact with the coil vaporizes and some other juice doesn't, a pressure bubble forms - "pop".  It's normal.  I have an angled tip so most splatter won't make it up to the top.

Remind one liberal per day, that laws affect only the law-abiding.

RE: Rice Krispies in my tanks
It's because the juice in your tank never really stops moving.  As it sits while you're sleeping, the weight of the juice will push down...your soak holes are at the bottom so the juice is already heading that way.  As it pushes on the soak holes, it pushes juice that's already in the coil up to the head (top) of the coil.  When you hit it for the first time in the morning, it's cooking off that excess of juice in the coil.

We have this problem with taste testers at the store. If they sit for a while I think the wicks are over saturated and they pop until they normalize. Just something to live with. It's really loud on subtanks
